18 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 58 percent for two points, 54 percent from three, those are the fantastic averages of Chris Jones in Wheelerban's perfect season opener in the Euroleague. Tomorrow (Thursday, 21:00) he will host his former team Maccabi Tel Aviv, and will try to put a stamp on what is currently, seems to be the big mistake of the Yellows in the summer.



The Yellows gave up on Jones, who was less suited to Yannis Sapropoulos' method of play and was perceived as a coordinator with a relatively low ceiling, in order to land Keenan Evans. Evans 'disappointing numbers so far - just 3.3 points on average in the Euroleague - further heighten doubts about the Yellows' move.



Either way, Maccabi Tel Aviv was the only team to give up Jones.

In the summer he was reported to be in the sights of senior Euroleague teams including Barcelona, ​​but has finally arrived at Villarban, and at least for now looks just fine.

After three rounds, she is the leading leader in the best factory on the continent, with only a less-than-good slim difference from Milan preventing her from leading the table.

After yesterday's big win over European champions Anadolu Zero, in which he scored 16 points and dropped 6 rebounds, senior European basketball journalist Chama de Lucas tweeted: "The fact that Chris Jones came to Villarban says a lot about Tony Parker's good management, but also shows the The Euroleague teams gave it up in a very bad light. "



Jones said after last night's win, in which the French came back from a 19-point deficit, that "it was a character win. It shows how much character I and I have. We're trying to build something here. Zero is the champion, so we wanted to give our best basketball "Their guards are tough and smart and have been playing together for several years, but we were just very strong mentally and physically, we gave everything in defense, and we got the stops we wanted against them."



Alongside the good ability in the Euroleague, Jones is emerging as the leader of the team.

He has already signed for three victories in the league, and in an interview he gave last week, he doubtfully bit Maccabi Tel Aviv, "I finally feel valued. It makes me feel good to know that I am trusted in the team."

Either way, just before the meeting with the Yellows, France are enthusiastic about Weillerbann.

This morning there was an unusual incident in the local sports media, when the cover of the popular newspaper "L'Equipe" was dedicated to basketball, a fairly secondary industry in France.

"Like a big team," read the front page of the newspaper, and it seems that the meeting with Maccabi Tel Aviv on Thursday will arouse more interest than usual.
